Posted: 8/19/2012
Location: Missoula, MT
Shape: Chevron
Duration:30 minutes
Double Chevron. Red, green, white and orange lights, hovering and moving right and left.

The object looked like a double chevron, with multi-colored, red, white and green. It hovered in one location. It changed direction several times. We saw the same thing the previous night in the North West side of Missoula just before sunset.

The night of this report it was due West, slightly after midnight. It was completely engine noises like from a helicopter or airplane. Occasionally, smaller white lights would move away from it, other times toward it.

The previous night, it appeared to drop down out of sight, then back up, then vanished. Sometimes it moved rapidly, other times it appeared to stand in one spot.

Sometimes the lights would almost fade out completely, other times it would glow brightly.

We watched it for at least 30 minutes, then gave up. Checked on it several times and it had moved toward the North somewhat.
